      Thanks phantomD,

      Anyone who takes advantage of this low priced deal should just be sure to get 'em steamed at Johns.

      I got greedy last time and bought 3 nine pounders. Boiling them at home made me feel as though I was on the set of "Alien 4". Those devils were HUGE...and did not appreciate being boiled alive one bit! Finding a pot big enough was a trial itself.

      The claws were as big as dinner plates and had to be cracked opened with a hammer. The meat was sweet though and the price is right. Good for a novelty meal and a great photo-op since they were bigger than our dog.

          Ya know, overall it's been a lousy summer weather wise. A lobster glut has been a welcome treat. Office lobster lunch, again!
